Yayasan Tun Suffian Scholarship

Since its establishment on 11 June 2002 the Tun Suffian Foundation, under the Joint Royal Patronage of Their Royal Highnesses the Sultan and the Raja Permaisuri of Perak, has, among other things, provided financial assistance to young Malaysians pursuing law studies and young lawyers attending educational seminars and conferences both here and abroad.

The Cambridge Tun Suffian Scholarship (modelled on the Rhodes Scholarships, the oldest international fellowships initiated after the death of Cecil Rhodes in 1902 to bring outstanding students to the University of Oxford) has received official recognition from the authorities at Cambridge. In March 2008, Low Weng Tchung, a Perak-born Malaysian student became the first Tun Suffian Scholar at Cambridge where he obtained a first class in the LLM degree.

In December 2009, Azlin binti Sabtu, a Senior Federal Counsel at the Malaysian Attorney-General’s Chambers became the second Tun Suffia Cambridge Scholar. She has successfully pursued the LLM degree with honours at Cambridge.

In line with its principal objective to perpetuate the good name of the late Tun, the Foundation had commissioned a distinguished author, Professor Salleh Buang, to write a book, reflective of the life and philosophy of the great mentor entitled “In Service Of The Law-Simplicity & Greatness-Tun Suffian’s Legacy.” The book has been a sell-out and is currently out of print.

The Board awarded a financial grant to Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) to facilitate a research group headed by Assoc Prof Dr Ismail Bin Omar to review the National Land Code 1965, the torrens-system upon which it is based has lasted over a century and is in dire need of being updated and amended.

It has also agreed to sponsor a group from the University of Malaya Law Faculty to publish a book containing Tun Suffian’s judgments on Public Law with commentaries.

In addition to the Tun Suffian Cambridge Scholarship, the Foundation, subject to availability of qualified applicants, is also offering the following awards to students studying at Malaysian public universities:
1. 5 LLB merit-based scholarships;
2. 5 LLB merit/need based scholarships;
3. 11 LLM merit-based scholarships; and
4. 12 PhD merit-based Scholarships for fields of study which need not be related to law.

Except for those pursuing the PhD in selected Malaysian universities, these scholarships are open only to Malaysian citizens.

All applications for scholarships (except for the Tun Suffian Cambridge Scholarship, for which see below) are to be submitted to the DEANS of the respective universities, who shall thereafter forward to the Honorary Secretary at the following address:
Tun Suffian Foundation Secretariat

PUTRAJAYA: Top SPM scorers who did not get Public Service Department (PSD) scholarships will be given 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) grants to study in local public and private universities.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz said Monday that 500 special education grants would be disbursed by 1MDB to rejected applicants.

He said that 300 of those scholarships would be given to bumiputra students while 200 would go to non-bumiputra students.

Priority would be given to applicants who got 8A+ but failed to get a PSD scholarship, he said.

However, bumiputra applicants from Sabah dan Sarawak with 6A+ and 5A+ would be considered, taking into consideration their parents' income and where they went to school, he told reporters after chairing the IMDB Scholarship meeting with representatives from Barisan Nasional's component parties at the Parliament building.

“Only the applicants from Sabah and Sarawak will be given greater flexibility on academic requirements. Bumiputra applicants from the peninsular have to comply with the pre-conditions academic and parents' income,” he said.

Those who had received other scholarships would not be considered, he added.
The scholarships to public universities would be worth RM7,500 a year and scholarships for study of critical courses in private universities would be worth RM15,000 a year while grants for non-critical courses would be worth RM7,5000, he said.

PSD would meet Tuesday to shortlist the candidates and the final list would be presented to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak before it was announced, he said.

Nazri says never promised scholarships abroad to all top scorers

Text quoted from http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/malaysia/article/nazri-says-never-promised-scholarships-abroad-to-all-top-scorers/

May 24, 2011

KUALA LUMPUR, May 24 — Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz has reminded Malaysians that Putrajaya never promised scholarships abroad to all SPM top scorers as the dispute grew over the distribution of the grants.

Instead, he said, the government had only committed itself to ensuring that all top scorers in the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) public examination would be guaranteed places in both local and foreign institutions.

“We never said that all 9A+ students would be sent overseas. But we did promise that they would get places, whether in local or foreign universities,” the minister in the Prime Minister’s Department told The Malaysian Insider when contacted.

Nazri (picture), who is in charge of the Public Service Department (PSD) scholarships, agreed that the government had allocated 1,500 overseas scholarships to top students but stressed that of the total, only 300 were given based entirely on merit to students scoring straight 9A+.

The remaining 1,200 overseas grants, he said, were distributed according to those qualified within four categories — Sabah Bumiputeras (five per cent), Sarawak Bumiputeras (five per cent), social composition or the population’s racial composition (60 per cent) and socially handicapped (10 per cent).

The grants, he added, would only be awarded to applicants who emerged top in their scholarship interviews with the PSD.

Those who did not make the cut, however, would still be given scholarships to study in local universities, said Nazri.

He explained that currently over 360 students fell within the merit category which offers only 300 awards, resulting in over 60 failing to obtain the overseas scholarships.

“This means they may or may not qualify for remaining 1,200 grants. It depends on how they fare in the interviews.

“Perhaps those who did not manage to get it were not very impressive in their interviews. We take into consideration not just their results but also on their co-curriculum activities and how they fared in their interviews.

“However, even if they fail here, they will still be given spots in local institutions,” he said.

As such, Nazri continued to pile criticism on MCA Youth chief Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong for harping on the issue and complaining of power abuse in the PSD.

Wee, who is also deputy education minister, is leading the escalating protest over the matter after complaining last week that 363 straight A+ students had failed to get the scholarships although Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had agreed last year that all students scoring 8A+ and above will receive PSD scholarships.

A check by The Malaysian Insider on Najib’s statement last year revealed that the prime minister had promised scholarships to all straight 9A+ students in both local and foreign universities.

“So if you do not have the facts, do not talk. I have opposition MPs who are trying to help students coming to see me... they do not go to the press.

“But Wee, a BN MP and a deputy minister, is going to the press and shouting in public for cheap publicity without even seeing me to understand the real issue,” said Nazri.
